The release date for “Batman Arkham Knight” may have been potentially pushed back. According to a report from Gameranx on April 20, a panel was held at this year’s Wonder Con. In addition to showing a trailer for the open-world action-adventure video game, the representative may have also stated that the software product won’t be coming out until next year.
“Batman Arkham Knight” has an initial release date set for sometime later this fall in North America. Several retailers began listing that the PC, PS4 and Xbox One title would be coming out on Oct. 12, which is around the same time that “Batman Arkham City” and “Batman Arkham Origins” were launched in previous years. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has not yet commented on the delay rumors.
However, some fans remain somewhat skeptical of the 2015 release date. The aforementioned panel was helmed by the editors at DC Comics: Jim Chadwick, Mike Cotton and Shelly Bond. Rocksteady Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment were not mentioned to be in attendance. There could be a chance that the trio may have misspoken.
“Batman Arkham Knight” is the most ambitious video game for the series to date. The open-world setting of Gotham City is going to end up being around 5 times as large as Arkham City in the previous installment. Furthermore, the development team decided to add the Batmobile vehicle for faster transportation as well as other potential new gameplay scenarios. The new addition eliminated the potential ports to the PS3, Wii U and Xbox 360. It may have also caused a delayed.
Rocksteady Studios previously declared that “Batman Arkham Knight” will be their final game for the series. The story is also set to conclude the storyline that began with “Batman Arkham Asylum” and continued in “Batman Arkham City.” You can take a look at one of the screenshots showcasing the upcoming PC, PS4 and Xbox One title from the official Facebook page of the series with the photo on top of this article.
